    Stocks bottomed and rebounded strongly this week after the Fed assured investors that interest rates are not going up any time soon. All of the losses in the first half of December were erased in just three days in most indices. Now the market heads into the strongest seasonal period of the year.

    Stocks opened at their highs of the week this past Monday, and closed at their lows on Friday.

    Stocks opened lower on Monday last week but quickly stabilized, and the indices spent the rest of the week recovering with some eventually making new highs.

    Stocks were up again last week, helped by a strong rally on Friday which was triggered by a drop in interest rates in China, of all things. The reason for the drop in rates was because of some bleak economic data so it may turn out to be an emotional response to something that should be considered a negative.

    Stocks were up last week and the chart below makes it appear that it was a big week, but the gains were only slight to moderate with the C-fund gaining 0.45% and the small caps picking up 0.27%. The I-fund led the way with a 0.87% gain.

    The trading ranges have been tight as the big rally ran out of some steam, but the bulls have remained in charge. The bears have been outnumbered but some overheard resistance in some of the charts may have them getting more aggressive
